Last workout: only seven more sleeps till Gripmas!

Grippers: working on set technique. RGC 79, 95, 106, 111, 112, 116. Had to try a couple of them twice because I mucked the set (damn if the pinky isn’t always in the wrong spot), but confident I can crush at least 110 without trouble. Working on using squats between attempts to stay warm. Still not a gripper guy.

Euro (2HP): Started with the bare device at 50x5, jumped to 100x5, 130x5, 150x3, 160x2, and a solid lift of 173.1 to finish. Probably opening at around 150.

Axle deadlift: Started at 123x5, jumped to 213x5, 263x3, 283x3 and 303x1. Way more in the tank. Plan is to open around 263 and jump 20 to 283, 20 to 303 and make my last attempt around 313.

Thanks to @Anton.Torrella again for the use of equipment and the consumption of his beer over the past 9 months, particularly since he thought there was no workout today and I just showed up at his place more or less unannounced. The Astoria grip crew is supportive and welcoming beyond belief. I’d be bending paperclips and doing double digits two handed on the Euro without their help. @Vinnie @Anthony C. @Jose Cabrera @Chez @Anyonecanhappen @anwnate @Juliet @FrankD @temmmeeee and anyone else I’ve forgotten, I am grateful for all your coaching and encouragement.

New log to start after Gripmas.
